One of the many things I ❀ about autumn, the harvest fruits and vegetables at their peak, and all the yummy recipes to use them in.

Apples are way up on that list!😊

The recipe (see page two) for:

 

AppleSour Cream, CrumbΒ Pie

 

is one of my🍎 favorites that I hope you enjoy soon.

I’m making one of these oh so rich and yummy pies, later today.

Definitely good but definitely NOT for a dieting day!!😏

 

Apple-Sour Cream, Crumb Pie

pie pastry for one large 9-10 inch pie

6-7 large apples (MacIntosh work very well), cut in chunks or slices

1/2 c. raisins

1/2 c. brown sugar

2T. cornstarch

1T. ground cinnamon

1c. light sour cream

1teas. pure vanilla extract

Crumb Topping

Roll out pie pastry, place into pie plate and flute edges of crust.

In a large bowl, combine apples with other pie ingredients. Spoon into crust and smooth top.

  1. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. You’re welcome!😊

  3. I want it… but have no apples alas. I might do something with rowan berries

  4. Oh definitely wait for the apples, with this particular recipe, Bjorn. It wouldn’t be the same with berries.πŸ™‚ Probably a mushy mess.

    Our pie from yesterday is half gone already. Yummmmm….😁

  5. This is the first time I tasted this pie, it is amazing. Not like an ordinary 🍎pie, so much better. The sour cream just adds a rich taste, I wondered what that would be like. Can’t wait for the next one.

  6. Apple time – so going to miss the apple festival we’ve been to several times in Normandy, France. Imagine apple pressing, apple doughnuts being cooked on the street, a little Calvados (apple brandy)! I shall just have to buy apples and make pies and pretend!

  7. I agree Joe, one yummy 🍎 treat!!!

    That sound wonderful Tinaor, thanks for sharing those memories and for visiting Veggies…

  8. Excellent recipe, I regularly make apple crumb pies (or crumbles as we call them over here), hadn’t thought of adding vanilla essence or cream, so may try that next time

  9. that looks and sounds delicious. I believe my mom made a similar pie when she was alive and I was about 17 – I sure she did the more I think about it. I can see it. Anyway thanks for the recipe. Decided to use FB account to log in – otherwise I have to put my info in every time to comment as it doesn’t save my info.

  10. I think you’ll enjoy this pie Juliet. The sour cream makes it special. And definitely not sour!!πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for sharing those memories Sandy. Hope you’ll give this recipe a try too. And will let you know if prompts are a GO over at My Poetic Path, glad you are interested😊
